Kohli and Tendulkar speak up on Dhoni's retirement


Minutes after MS Dhoni got dismissed in the semifinal game against New Zealand at Old Trafford, #ThankYouDhoni started trending all over social media giving rise to speculations of Dhoni's retirement. 

Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar weighed in on the topic and said that Dhoni knows the best when to call it quits and that he should be left alone. That’s his personal decision [end of 50-over career]. Everyone should give him that space and respect that. Everyone should respect what his contribution to India cricket rather than starting speculations. After having contributed so much, he should be the one taking that decision,” said Schin to medie, 

Indian skipper Virat Kohli while addressing the post match press conference said that he had not received any communication from Dhoni and implied that he would be available for selection for the upcoming West Indies tour if no statement is made from Dhoni's side. Asked if Dhoni has said anything about his future plans, with the squad for the West Indies tour to be announced soon, Kohli said, “No he hasn’t told us anything as of now.”

Meanhile, Kohli reflecting on India's performance said that 45 minutes of bad cricket cost them their World Cup campaign. "It breaks your heart also, because you worked so hard throughout the tournament to build momentum, you finish number one in the table, and then a spell of bad cricket and you’re out of the tournament," said the skipper.
